Earn-a-bike

Earn-a-bike

Some of the people that are trained on the project will be eligible to 'earn-a-bike' if they come from groups that would not otherwise have the opportunity to own one.  These groups will undertake a course of bike maintenance classes during which they will refurbish bikes for the project to sell and, if they successfully complete the course, the trainee mechanics will be given a bike to take away.

This element of the project emphasises empowerment and self-reliance rather than charity, and involves practical, hands-on engagement that functions as a bonding process between owner and bicycle.
